Amber Portwood, the Teen Mom star who was hospitalized earlier this month after a suicide attempt, is taking steps to hopefully better her life by entering rehab.
On June 14th, Portwood was found semi-conscious by police in her home after taking an unreported amount of pills. Before the incident, Portwood spoke with her baby’s daddy, Gary Shirley, telling him that she was going to hang herself. Allegedly, rope was found in the girl’s house.
In an interview with Star Magazine, Amber said that she’s entering rehab for “anger issues and depression . . . I’m on medication at the moment to just help me relax. I’m in a vulnerable state right now and I know people want a lot of answers.”
Amber says that her daughter is keeping her strong during these dark times, and that before she makes the move to L.A. where she’ll begin rehab, she’ll be seeing a psychiatrist to begin sorting out her issues.
Stay strong, Amber!
